I was enormously proud that the entire staff at WBZ was awarded the DuPont Award and Peabody Award this last year because those are the highest honors in journalism, which recognize the outstanding work of every single person in the newsroom – in front of and behind the camera.

It was a privilege to be a part of such a tremendous team effort. As for highlights, I feel honored to have had the chance to cover incredibly varied news over the years. It was fascinating to be at both the 2004 Democratic National Convention in Boston where Barack Obama gave the keynote speech and then, a month later, the Republican Convention in New York. It was thrilling to be one of the first broadcasters to have the chance to say, "Good morning, the Red Sox have won the World Series!" in 2004 – since the final game ended after midnight. I feel fortunate to have been selected to travel to London, England for the royal wedding of Prince William to Catherine Middleton to handle morning coverage for all CBS stations and, of course, the Canonization of the Popes in Rome in March. 64 W e l l e s l e y W e s t o n M a g a z i n e | f a l l 2 0 1 4 an interview with paula ebben
